Did you know, one of the most effective ways to stop someone stealing your vehicle (keyless or not) is to use a wheel lock. That way even if thieves manage to open your car door they won’t be able to drive your vehicle away.

Signal-blocking pouches

Consider purchasing a Faraday pouch to keep your car key in. These pouches contain signal-blocking materials that stop your key transmitting its code, preventing crooks from being able to detect and amplify the signal.

If you saw or heard anything or have any information about the above incidents please call our Non-Emergency number 101 or via web chat www.west-midlands.police.uk. Alternatively you can contact the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111 or online at www.crimestoppers-uk.org
